Applications now solicited for CINAR Fellows in Quantitative Fisheries and Ecosystem Science

Applications are now being solicited for CINAR Fellows in Quantitative Fisheries and Ecosystem Science.  This call is open to early-career scientists with appointments at CINAR partner institutions: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), University of Maine (UMaine), Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI), Rutgers University, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Studies (UMCES), University of Rhode Island (URI), University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES), and University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Marine Sciences and Technology (SMAST).  Support for these fellowships is being provided by the NOAA Quantitative Ecology and Socioeconomics Training (QUEST) program, which supports educating and training the next generation of stock assessment scientists, ecosystem scientists, and economists.

The goal of this fellowship program is to support early career scientists who are working on assessment and management related issues.  Fellowship funding will be provided to individual CINAR faculty who write successful proposals describing how they will use the funds in support of QUEST priorities. These faculty must be early career (i.e., Assistant or Associate Professor, Assistant or Associate Scientist, or Assistant Research Professor).  Faculty must work in stock assessments, ecosystem-based assessments, or socio-economics (e.g., economic /policy research on use and management of fisheries by communities dependent on marine resources), with the goal of providing essential information for the sustainable management of living marine resources. They also should have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the QUEST mission.

Applications are due October 31, 2022.  Please click here for the Announcement describing guidelines and selection criteria.  Feel free to contact Mindy Richlen at with questions.
